My husband does run! He started really training a little over a year ago and he is very fast. We have run two races together and they were a blast. I am hoping that we will be able to run many more races together in the future and he even promised that he would run a marathon with me at some point. When I first met him he didn't like running at all so it is so fun to see him enjoy it so much now.5. Does your husband run as well? If so, do you ever do races together?
You are really nice:) I love running and I love setting new goals for myself. I love training to reach those goals and I can't wait to improve.6. How does it make you feel to be such an accomplished runner? Let's face it Janea Your Fast.
I love hearing about people wanting to get into running, it makes me so happy because I want other people to enjoy all of the benefits of running too. I think that first you need to make sure you have good shoes. Go to a running shoe store to be fitted for shoes that are right for you. I would focus on running for time in the beginning rather than distance. Start with a goal like running for 5 minutes followed by walking and increase the time each week. The couch to 5k plan (http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml) is a great plan to follow for beginners! Find a buddy to run with. One of my favorite things about running is running with other people and it is so motivating to have a running partner. Think of some rewards that will help motivate you to reach your goals. I like to buy new running gear (shorts, tops etc) once I meet a goal or getting a massage is also a great reward for meeting your running goals. My last tip for new runners is to sign up for a race like a 5k or 10k. Once you pay the money for a race you will be more likely to stick to running! Know that running is hard for everyone! It gets easier but we all start at the beginning and experience the same things you are experiencing and for most people it takes time to really grow to love running.7. Do you have a just a few tips to help any of my readers who are not runners but desperately want to be?
I think that it is very important to include speed work and hill work into your training to get faster. It takes time and dedication to get faster but I truly believe that everyone can get faster. I wrote a post about my favorite ways to get faster here:8. I am desperate to work on my speed. One of my biggest goals is to Qualify for Boston. Any advice on speed work and what works the best for you?
I do not follow a specific diet plan. I try to eat healthy but I love sweets more than anyone you know:)9. Do you follow a specific diet plan or just try to eat healthy to keep your weight down, miss skinny mini 2 seconds after having a baby?
I would love to continue to run races for the rest of my life. I love the racing atmosphere and everything about it. There is so much excitement and it is so fun to talk to runners of all ages and from all over the world. Running the NYC Marathon was incredible because I was able to talk to so many different people about their love for running.10. Do you plan on running races for the rest of your life?
HECK YEAH! That would be awesome:) I have some big goals in terms of running but I also have big goals in other areas of my life so I don't think I will dedicate the amount of time and training it takes to become pro. For now I am just going to continue to run everyday and love it for the amazing benefits. Getting some pr's will be really nice too.12. If you ever had the chance to go pro, would you take it?
